I’ve been away for a few days and am trying to get through all my emails but thought I’d post this right away. It’s from Mina Ahadi about a stoning sentence in Sudan:
Intisar who is under 18 and has three children of whom the youngest is five months old is now in Omdurmanprison in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, with her five-month-old child. She has been condemned to death by stoning for allegedly having sexual relations outside marriage. She was tried without a lawyer or an interpreter, and was condemned to be stoned on the 22nd of April, 2012. She says that she was forced to confess under torture.
The International Committee Against Stoning invites all human-rights organisations, as well as all opponents of stoning and the people of the world as a whole, to protest immediately against this young woman’s stoning sentence…
Just as in the case of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, this time too the people of the world must arise and declare that they will not allow these Islamic criminals to wrap a young woman in a burial shroud while she is still alive and then torture to death by throwing stones at her. Protest against Intisar Sharif Abdallah’s stoning sentence by any means possible!
